HC 4301 - Fundamentals of HC Information Systems
Healthcare information technology (HIT) systems can improve cost and efficiency when systems are properly evaluated and implemented. Good IT systems are also increasingly being associated with better patient outcomes. However, healthcare has lagged behind other industries in adoption of IT systems. A major challenge to healthcare professionals is understanding the major underlying technical concepts involved in the jargon-filled world of healthcare information systems. This foundational course provides a working knowledge of key HIT definitions and concepts. It is not designed to turn students into network administrators or software developers; rather it is to equip the student to become an active and valuable participant – or even a team leader – in the evaluation, selection, implementation and ongoing operation of health information systems. NOTE: This course is a pre-requisite for HC 4325 except with approval by the academic director.
